By now, the dust is settling on the statement Rangers issued last night after it emerged Derek McInnes would not be joining the club as Pedro Caixinha’s successor.

Unsurprisingly, there were many reactions on social media to the statement, primarily for its use of the lesser-spotted word ‘concomitant’.

Meaning ‘naturally accompanying or associated’, the word appeared in the statement’s fourth paragraph.

Fans and journalists alike took to social media to comment on the use of the word and the statement in general - here are some of the best reactions...

@JohnBarnes01 tweeted: “Brilliant. At least Rangers are doing their bit for education. Fans and reporters looking up the definition of concomitant.”

@pwmcomms added: “Well you learn something new everyday. I thought ‘Concomitant’ used to play Centre Back for France...”

@jaggytooth wrote: “See if Derek McInnes doesn’t slip concomitant into his next presser, it’ll be an open goal missed and I’ll be hugely disappointed...”

@AlasdairSim suggested: “The amount of Google searches for ‘concomitant’ must be wild tonight.”

@itslegaltender asked: “When’s Andy Halliday coming back off loan from Concomitant?”

@ry_mack83 joked: “Sick day tomorrow. ‘Nah sorry boss, I’m concomitant’.”

@GreigC22 wanted to know: “What does concomitant actually mean? Baffle us with fancy words, take our minds off the fact we’re still managerless?”

@ETimsNet wondered: “Did we really draw Concomitant in the Europa League?”

@morralexand added: “Rangers might not win the league, but they would win a scrabble tournament.”

@Jinky_Tim echoed Caixinha, saying: “The dog barks, but the concomitant keeps going.”
